    • William F. “Bill” Kukes OBITUARY

      William F. “Bill” Kukes was born November 28, 1930, in Fromberg, Montana to Jacob W. and Katharina Kukes. He was the eighth of nine children. He proudly enlisted in the US Marine Corp in 1952 serving at Camp Pendelton, Camp LeJune, and Camp Yokohoma, Japan.

      He married Jessie Boylan on October 9, 1954. They had four children: Connie Cosner (Steve), Robert Kukes (Kelly), Jane Kukes-Penney (Ken Penney), and Shirley Ehlang (Mike). Eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren: Katharine Rupp (Justin), Dorian, Josie Lyn, and Sterling; Jason Frank (Krista) Tenley and baby due in July; Dr. Brittney Kukes Moody (Joe) and Emerson; Kolter Kukes; Karson Kukes; Casey Penney; Jessica Ehlang; and Seth Ehlang.

      Dad was fortunate enough to live out his one true passion of farming and ranching. His only regret as he got older is that he could no longer drive his prized John Deere tractors and could not ride the horses anymore.

      He passed away in the early morning hours of March 12, 2016. The family would like to thank the amazing Dialysis team, doctors, and nurses at the Billings Clinic for the care and compassion given to dad.

      In lieu of flowers, the family wishes that memorials be made in Bill’s name to the Laurel Volunteer Fire Department, the Molt Volunteer Fire Department, or a charity of your choosing.
